What Are the Penalties for Multiple DUI Convictions?

As with any criminal offense, the penalties for being found guilty of driving under the influence more than once depend on the specifics of your circumstances. Nonetheless, whether you are facing a second, third, or fourth DUI charge, the impacts of a conviction on your life could be substantial. The information gets put on your criminal record, which is accessible to the public, as well as potential employers and lenders. Additionally, a driving under the influence charge (and conviction) may result in a suspension of your driver's license, making it difficult for you to take care of necessary tasks.

The penalties for a second offense include:

  • 90 days to 1 year in jail
  • $390 to $1,000 in fines
  • Driver's license suspension for 2 years

A third offense DUI conviction carries with it:

  • 120 days to 1 year in jail
  • $390 to $1,000 in fines
  • Driver's license suspension for 3 years

For a fourth and subsequent DUI conviction, the penalties are as follows:

  • 180 days to 1 year in jail
  • $390 to $1,000 in fines
  • Driver's license suspension for 4 years

The sanctions mentioned above are just a few you could face for multiple DUI convictions in Los Angeles. Other punishments could also be meted out, such as a requirement to install an ignition interlock device on vehicles you drive and completing an alcohol treatment program.
